RiverRun Eco-Initiative


JDL Castle CorporationPrimo Water, Hanesbrands, Inc. and In Good Taste Fine Catering are proud to sponsor and support RiverRun’s Eco-Initiative.   

RiverRun International Film Festival has always been conscious of the resources used to produce our Festival.  As we strive to minimize our impact on the environment, the Festival offers: 

Complimentary Hydration Stations

RiverRun provides free Primo water stations at all screening venues of the Festival and the YWCA shuttle stop. We encourage patrons to bring their own re-useable bottles to take advantage of the complimentary water offered.

Recycling Program

Recycling is encouraged throughout RiverRun and each venue is equipped with recycling receptacles for PET bottles, glass and paper waste.

Reduced Waste

At party venues, glassware is utilized when possible. We also employ disposable cups made from 50% post-consumer recycled PET bottles that can be recycled.

Eco-printing for Paper Collateral

Recycled paper and non-toxic, soy-based inks are used exclusively for the 20,000 RiverRun Program Books and Brochures.

Sustainable Merchandise

RiverRun creates a variety of Festival branded eco-merchandise, such as apparel made with recycled fibers and reusable tote bags.
